Our garden is bursting with these gorgeous red clovers right now (they’re a cover crop).

Turkeys! Their names are Dinner, Pilgrim, and Tom. XD

This one also counts as an animal, OK?

Insects

I was experimenting with our telescopic camera lens today. It lets you zoom in a whole lot closer. That’s how I was able to get so much detail on this bee.

14-DSC_0119

I saw this tiger swallowtail butterfly flitting through the garden and immediately began to photograph it.

15-DSC_0120

I say “flitting,” though I really mean limping. Half of the butterfly’s right wing was missing. :/

    GAHHH, that was BEAUTIFUL, Loren! You should totally do these posts more often! I loved it! Aah, the flower pictures are lovely! Wow, your dad’s chickens are really good! Ooh, the nests are so pretty! Hmm… that’s so strange/neat/sad about the butterfly’s wing. But it was still beautiful! And for everything else I missed, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL! This has to be one of my favorite photography posts! Now I’m jealous. >:( XD You’re such a good photographer!
    Wow, that was a rant. XD

        Ha ha, yep that WAS an epic comment. XD You’re extremely welcome, Loren! If Megan ever does the “best of 2016” thing, I’m probably going to suggest this for best photography post! (Well, so far… XD ) Aww, thank you so much! That means a lot. :) Yep, I am most definitely going to enter some more photos in the fair this year, if possible! *Rubs hands together maliciously* XD Only I guess I won’t exactly be competing with you, but… Are you going to enter any? You should enter some from this post!
